State EDC chief: Home is where the wealth is

January 21, 2015

Creating new wealth in the community begins on the local level.

That was part of the message from Carlton Schwab, President/CEO of the Texas Economic Development Council (TEDC), who spoke at the Big Spring Economic Development board of directors meeting Tuesday night.

“It’s really a local endeavor and Big Spring has to take care of itself,” Schwab said. “The corporation here has the board and resources to do it. The state level involvement is going to change when the politicians change. You (Big Spring) just need to keep doing what you are doing.”

Defense keys Steers’ 45-33 win over Snyder

January 21, 2015

SNYDER – Everyone in the Tigers’ Den on Tuesday night knew the Big Spring High School Steers could score points. They have, after all, scored with the area’s best in each of the last two seasons.
What few expected was how dominating Big Spring would be on the defensive end of the ball.
The Steers limited Snyder to just 13 points in the second and third quarters of play and cruised to a 45-33 victory over the Tigers in a key District 2-4A showdown. As a team, Snyder managed just five baskets from the field in the first 16 minutes.

Batman and Robin.
Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis
David and the rock.
None of those teams were quite as scary as Julianna Rodriguez and Diamonique Mayes were to the Snyder Lady Tigers on Tuesday evening in the Tigers’ Den in Snyder. After all, none of the aforementioned duos had as many hits as the Lady Steers’ offensive leaders.
Rodriguez and Mayes combined for 28 points – just 14 fewer than the entire Snyder team – and August Alexander buried a pair of clutch three-point shots en route to powering Big Spring to a convincing 55-38 victory.
